Gibraltar will take the trip in girls basketball to Elkhart Lake to face Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah on Saturday evening.

Gibraltar has gotten most of their scoring from Andie Schar and Mikala Gorham, who average a combined 22 points per game. The Resorters are a high scoring team, averaging 53 points per game, so the Vikings will need to bring their defense on the road with them.

The Resorters are 7-7 overall and 4-6 in the North division of the Big East Conference.

Gibraltar boys outlasts Algoma on U 102.1

In a seesaw battle between two Packerland Conference rivals, it was Gibraltar that delivered the final blow in a 58-53 victory Friday night at Algoma.

 

The Vikings took an early lead with Jake Schar pacing the offense with turnaround jumpers inside the arc and threes in transition to help the team build a 10 point lead. It was then the Wolves' Kaden Vardon's turn to take the reins of the game offensively. He scored 11 of his team-high 11 points in the first half to help the Wolves get back into the game. Coupled with a press defense and a timely three by Cody Kirchman, the Wolves turned the deficit into a one-point halftime advantage.

 

The Vikings would flip the script of the game from the opening whistle, going on a 11-1 run that would give them another 10-point lead in the contest. The Wolves flipped the switch again defensively as the Vikings struggled to get looks in the middle part of the second half while Algoma's offense whittled away at the deficit. The two teams would jockey for position the rest of the way until Schar's runner in the final minutes went in while he got fouled, leading him to convert the three-point play. Carl Burgess would ice the game away in the final seconds, converting three of his final four free throws bookending a stretched-out block by Will Friedenfels.

For the Vikings, Schar led the way with 26 points while Friedenfels added nine and Braden Sitte and Burgess each chipped in eight. Vardon was joined by Owen Robertson and Parker Lischka in double figures.

 

The Vikings will next play at Kewaunee on January 26th while the Wolves host Kewaunee on January 24th. 

 

 

Gibraltar, Algoma share similar road on U 102.1

There are a lot of similarities between Gibraltar and Algoma's boys' basketball programs heading into their Friday matchup at the Fulwiler Fieldhouse.

 

Both teams have adjusted to having new head coaches slide over a few seats to take the reins of the program as Travis Ward spent a few years under Justin Burress' guidance at Gibraltar and Eric Schneider coached the junior varsity at Algoma for a decade before moving up to varsity. The coaches have been tasked with replacing 1,000-point scorers with Gibraltar's Sam Lindenberg and Algoma's Carter Zimmerman graduating last year.

 

Both programs are also heading into the second half of the season on a high note after the pair were able at least to slow down a potent Southern Door offense in losses. The Wolves (5-8) outscored Stockbridge 45-10 in the second half of their 78-30 win earlier this week. Kaden Vardon and Owen Robertson are each averaging more than 10 points on the season. The Vikings saw Jake Schar and Carl Burgess each score over 20 points as they beat Sturgeon Bay on Tuesday to improve to 3-9.

 

Tim Kowols and Jacob Nate will have the call on U 102.1 and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com beginning at 7:15 p.m. followed by the opening tip at 7:30  p.m.

Vikings boys sink Clippers on U 102.1

The Gibraltar Vikings started each half strongly and finished the game with a 67-58 win over Sturgeon Bay Tuesday night in Fish Creek. 

 

The Vikings started hot out of the gate with a 7-0 lead early. Behind great three-point shooting from Calvin Richard and Isaak Aune, the Clippers were able to reel in the Vikings to keep the game close. Carl Burgess was able to knock down three three-pointers of his own to help give the Vikings a 35-33 lead at the break. The two teams combine to hit 11 shots from behind the arc in the first half.

The Vikings came out firing on all cylinders in the second half, going on an 8-0 run in the opening minutes of the second half to build a 10-point lead early. The Clippers would respond once again with Garrett Ulberg hitting a pair of threes and their defense denying the Vikings the ability to set-up an inside game. The Vikings were able to get to the free-throw line and hit their shot when they needed to keep the Clippers at bay for their third win of the season and their second in the Packerland Conference.

 

Jake Schar led the Vikings with a game-high 23 points and Carl Burgess added 20 points in the victory. Will Friedenfels scored 12 points including a pair on a dunk in the second half.

 

Aune scored 22 points to lead the Clippers in the loss while Richard scored thirteen points, with the two combining to hit eight shots from deep. Three others scored at least six points in the loss.

Gibraltar boys look to bounce Sturgeon Bay on U-1021

The Gibraltar boys' basketball team will try to break a two-game losing streak when Sturgeon Bay comes to Fish Creek on Tuesday.

 

The Vikings took a slim lead into the break against one of the Packerland front-runners on Friday night, but Drew Daoust scored 25 of his game-high 35 points in the second half of Southern Door's 55-47 win on Friday night. The Vikings would not get closer than four points after the 9-0 run, despite Sitte and Will Friedenfels each registering six of their 15 and 11 points, respectively in the second half. Carl Burgess contributed nine points to the cause in the Vikings' loss. 

 

The Clippers made the most of Jim Benesh's memory last Thursday in their win over the Algoma Wolves 58-35. Isaak Aune and Calvin Richard were the stars of the first half, and they continued it throughout the whole game. Aune hit two back-to-back step-back threes to officially sink the Wolves’ chances of mounting a comeback and sparking a huge run for the Clippers to get out to a 21-point lead.

 

Tim Kowols and Jacob Nate will have the call on U-1021 and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com beginning at 7:15 p.m. with the pregame show followed by the opening tip at 7:30 p.m.

After a 61-49 win over the Sturgeon Bay Clippers on Tuesday night, the Vikings will get right back on the court and try to keep their momentum swinging their way. A very strong performance from Andie Schar led the Vikings to their victory, as she got it done on both ends to improve on her impressive season so far.

Vikings boys host Pioneers for fight for Packerland win

After Saturday, either the Gibraltar Vikings or Sevastopol Pioneers will have won their first Packerland conference game as the Vikings play host to the Pioneers. 

 

Gibraltar seems to be gaining some momentum once again as they welcomed back Will Friedenfels earlier this week, as he adds another dimension of offense and defense to the team. The past two losses for the Vikings have been 10 points or less, and against two quality opponents in Two Rivers and Oconto. Gibraltar will look to snap their current 5 game losing streak Saturday. 

 

Sevastopol will be fresh off of their second win of the season, as they defeated Stockbridge 56-47, after opening up a 11 point lead at the half. Lucas Delsart has shown his potential as a scorer at times this season, as the Sophomore has high games of 13, 12 and recently 16 in their Stockbridge win.
